with the port, but with maria's project, the projects that mosconi, the projects at treasure island -- is the same as failure in my view. it comes down to the unity of vision. people in san francisco have to care about the waterfront. we have to be united in our desire for change and improvement, but we have to see a vision and how that visual will benefit all of us. it has not turned out that just looking at life and of utilization is enough to stimulate change. so again, i want to -- i want all of you to be participants in that dialogue. you are each invested in what happens in the southeastern sector of the city. a look forward to seeing you at each and every board of supervisors' meeting with us. thank you.

forget. at every fire station in the city, we have 43, including our station on treasure island. all of our members and the public are certainly welcome to for dissipate and observe a moment of silence and a special ceremony for those that lost their lives, whether it be at the pentagon in and sylvania or at the world trade center, and we will be reading of, as we have every year since 9/11, the names of the firefighters that paid the ultimate price and gave the ultimate sacrifice at the world trade center. all of our stations will be getting under way with the ceremony, and it will last probably 35 minutes or so. i believe there is a national order to have all the flags at half staff as well. >> i need to call for some public comment. is there any public comment at this time on this particular item? seeing none, i want to move on. basically, i would like to recommend, and i am planning on rescheduling item four, the summary of the after action reports, and item five, project cornerstone wireless broadband public safety initiatives until our next disaster council meeting. date and lo
be extended. would it be a function of the soon to be newly created treasure island transportation management agency which is supposed to be appointed by the board of supervisors? will it be one of the responsibility of the transportation management agency to oversee and guide us in the future in developing policies, mitigation measures, and how we can afford it. maybe we can also consider giving some options so that we as well as member of the public can look into -- can understand what are the possibilities because the impacts are quite immense. i really like to see some alternatives being suggested or options into how these mitigation measures can be funded. the second area i would like to bring up is public -- in the public service session. i have always been keen about asking about emergency services because of the unique location of the island and study across state and all of us know bay bridge is the only emergency access to and from san francisco . i fear that that could be a little more adequate information in terms of how we mitigate the measures because certainly the increase in p
, the hunters point naval shipyard, and treasure island. naval shipyard has long been on the closure list, but the presidio and treasure island came in the late 1980's. first, we fought the closure, and then we accepted our fate and had a transition, and i appreciate the secretary saying that the model a country on how we go forward. the mayor, his leadership has been relentless on behalf of this project. there brown was similarly relentless, and that is why when we had a new president, we were ready. michael, thank you for your leadership. thank you for your work and your leadership as director of drug development of san francisco, because that -- zap worked so hard to make all of this possible. i wanted to make sure that they were recognized, but there are so many other partners who have not been acknowledged, and i associate myself with the remarks made in praise of them. from the beginning of world war ii, treasure island served as a critical base for the united states navy. hunters point, presidio, treasure island -- how proud san francisco has been with our association with our men
addressing issues for treasure island. and its importance. we are dealing with a very sizable plot which we don't usually encounter with a project in san francisco so we are really looking to utilize the land for wind power, technologies, and other renewable, clean sources of energy like solar power and energy storage. really thrilled just to be a part of the project and really looking forward to building and installing our new treasure island, thanks. >> thank you. commissioners. nice to see you again. all bloom, i was original founder of treasure island use authority way back when and one of the founding members of the advisory board. i'm filling in somewhat inadequately for the maimingor role. our lawsuit against the navy helped ensured this island is on a proper track for the cleanup, and is well remediated in our campaign to correct the location of the ferry building helped lead -- ferry terminal at the site helped lead to its current location. we have been involved in this for some time. we are speaking to you today, i'm speaking to you today to ask for a two-week extension of the rev
, there was a councilmember who stated, what i hope is a career-limiting opinion, that there are no nimbys on treasure island. we have no representation on the council. where is chris caly? -- chris daly? he has been absent for how long? furthermore, this will tear us apart and scattered along the island indefinitely, not keep us together as a group, and then make it so onerous, that we have no interest in staying. i expect to move from a 3- bedroom apartment to a 1-bedroom apartment on treasure island. after that, priced us up out of the ybi. why not price have the land to accommodate the residents that are there today. we know we have somewhere to come back to. we can take care of ourselves during redevelopment. furthermore, the cab has failed us. it ignored us and shut us out. each time that i attended a cab, after an over presentation, what to do one resident was on the board, who joined, six months ago? rolling every time he speaks about our concerns. >> thank you. >> commissioners, good morning. tony ganter. for many, it is startling to see the one ring bridge when they approach. are we not comfortable
that on the record. >> the next question i had was about treasure island and why we would divide treasure island into two separate attendance areas. both require transportation, i am assuming. that does not seem to make fiscal sense to me to have two different transportation routes from the same place. >> there were multiple factors contemplated. one had to do with the diversity and supporting the goal of the board of reversing the trend of racial isolation and the concentration of students at schools and for schools to have capacity to accommodate the students. it was also for equitable access, for children who live on treasure island to have the opportunity to go to more than one school. that would be positive in the direction of providing equitable access. >> all of treasure island is a ctf1. . >> as we think about how we will support families living on treasure island to be able to attend schools with transportation to those schools and thinking about what schools are not too far away, rather than having 100% of the kids on treasure island go to sherman or chin, we would have two attendance
phrases. i am available to answer whatever questions. we also work with the kids on treasure island. that is the responsibility of san francisco to provide transportation to the island and to its residents. we have a number of issues out there, and we have a great work relationship with the director that has worked with us. now that the terminal is going to be close, we're going to be working to get those people over there. as you may not be aware, the 108 is the only line of transportation that is provided by the city. they have one line that transports the people there back-and-forth. we have a number of students from the treasure island that are attending the school district here. they come home in the morning and they get their education. when school is finished, they are back on the bus which is usually a transfer, and then they go over to treasure island. supervisor dufty: commissioner kim:. -- commissioner kim. commissioner kim: i am looking at a survey that the use commission provided. it says here that 40% of students are most likely to report violence and harassment from o
convener for treasure island somebody is getting paid to have convener meetings and bring the community together. >> i can get that information for you after this meeting. through the community -- i'm sorry -- department children youth and families of the city are paying the treasure island development housing initiative. it's being paid to do community convening. >> that's tidi and i understand tidi there is the residents out there. and tidi has their ideas there are market rate people that want to organize. >> this is a new funding that has come out where they will engage the whole community. follow up because they got money specifically to engage the entire community. >> i'd like to add that we up here we really want to help every single person every neighborhood organization in the room. what we need from you is to sign the clip board that's come around because even though you signed in when you registered for this workshop that's going to city government. they don't share their information with us. we have no way of contacting you once this workshop is over unless you sign in.
